Diving Information

Visability is fantastic and there is a variety of colourful marine life along with drop offs, caves, tunnels and even a wreck. Diving packages range from a single dive to 6/12/15 dives. and these can be accompanied or unaccompanied. Equipment is available to hire and a range of PADI courses are offered.

Gozo has a remarkable number of dives accessible from the shore and many more that are just a short boat ride away. The small size of the island means that you spend little time travelling between sites and if there is wind on one side of the island you are only minutes from an alternative dive-site.

Decommissioned ships have been scuttled off Gozo’s South coast, near Comino’s Blue Lagoon and near Malta’s north coast. One wreck in particular was scuttled in shallow water purposely to be enjoyed by less experienced divers.

Gozo is a small island so dive sites are never more than a 20 minute drive or a short boat ride away. Many of the best known dive sites like the famous Blue Hole, the Inland Sea and Reqqa Point are accessible from shore. It’s a matter of parking the dive truck, kitting up and walking into the sea, straight onto drop offs and reefs, caves and arches all buzzing with Marine Life.

Gozo’s coast is surrounded by high cliffs and more than half of the coast cannot be accessed from shore. Boats may be used to access several dive sites beneath the cliffs and the dive sites of Comino island and the wrecks near Malta.
